Hypocrisy Alert: Clinton Claims Endorsement Of Congressman Who Doesn’t Support Her

During this campaign, Team Clinton has taken a strong stance against campaigns claiming endorsements from people or newspapers that actually haven’t endorsed the candidate. In February, when they alleged that Bernie Sanders was engaging in the tactic, Clinton communications director Jen Palmieri put out a statement slamming what they called the “deceptive campaign tactics” of the Sanders campaign:

“It seems the Sanders campaign has shifted from insulting and dismissing people who don’t support him to falsely claiming their support. Despite being called on deceptive campaign tactics and misleading ads for weeks now, Sanders has now chosen to mislead voters on a veteran and veterans’ group’s support. Enough is enough—voters deserve better.”

So it must have been a huge shock to Congressman Rick Nolan (D-MN) when he was listed as a supporter of Hillary Clinton. According to Rep. Nolan’s spokesman, the congressman has made no such endorsement:

“’Congressman Nolan has not made an endorsement in the 2016 presidential race, and there is currently no plan to do so,’ said Nolan’s campaign spokesperson Joe Radinovich.”

In fact, Nolan’s district was won by a two-to-one margin by Bernie Sanders, a fact his spokesman says they have been reminding him of.

America Rising has long shown that Hillary Clinton’s rules don’t get applied to herself, and this issue is no different.
